I haven't watched much Oprah-my daytime TV preferences tend to veer toward the endangered species called the soap opera. But because Oprah is Oprah, it's been hard to completely avoid the show, and while I don't think I've ever watched an episode in its entirety, it still seeped into my life. So here are ten moments from the show that left an impression on me, a guy who wasn't paying attention at all (some of them are probably very different from everyone else's):
10. Tom Cruise acts like Tom Cruise. The man stood on a couch and acted like a schmuck. It wasn't exciting enough to warrant the hundred million times I saw the clip. Let's move on.
9. Gail looks for a good hamburger. I think I saw this episode at my mother-in-law's house during a holiday visit one year. I don't know what drew me into this episode-maybe Gail, maybe the hamburgers-all I know is it captured my imagination.
